Freddie Starr In I'm A Celebrity Health Doubt
Paperwork problems reported to be threatening jungle appearance...
Comedian Freddie Starr is claimed to be in doubt for this year's I'm A Celebrity... Get Me Out Of Here! because of problems getting his insurance sorted out.
The 68-year-old, who underwent a quadruple heart bypass operation last year, has apparently been left sitting by the pool as the rest of the celebs have already entered the jungle.
A source on the show told The Sun newspaper: "Without insurance, contestants are not allowed to compete. Because of his well-documented health problems, getting insurance has taken far longer than anyone thought.
"Bosses hope to get it sorted but if it doesn't happen soon it will be the end of his jungle dream."
But another 1980s "icon" is apparently waiting in the wings in case Freddie doesn't get the all-clear - famously be-mulleted radio DJ Pat Sharp.
